I have installed the alpha version of Cura, and as part of that, updated the firmware of my TAZ 6.
The first print I attempted gave me hints that I need to re-calibrate the z Height offset, and the extruder scaling factor.
I have partially disassembled my extruder so I could measure the amount that the filament moves without any back pressure from forcing it through the extruder. Unfortunately it seems that extruder motion is disabled.
I tried running the “auto home” (faking the z axis by pressing the z fiducial switch with my finger), but the extruder motor remained unpowered.
What is the correct procedure for calibrating the extruder?
